1. Role models
Characters in bedtime stories often become role models or mentors to the children as they become acquainted with them, leaving a lifelong impression on the child’s imagination.

2. Critical thinking

Through bedtime stories, children become critical thinkers, especially as bed time stories often present characters with challenges, riddles or mysteries to solve. Children sometimes formulate a hypothesis or anticipate the outcome.

3. Becoming storytellers

As children listen to bedtime stories night after night, they develop natural storytelling instincts. They learn to narrate better and even create their own characters with vivid descriptions. Thanks to bedtime stories.  Children learn to express themselves freely and share their stories confidently.

Read one story to your child every night and watch their imagination and creativity soar.
